Saturdays (term time only) at Allerton C of E Primary School, Alwoodley, 9am-1.15pm

North Leeds Music Centre runs over 50 different music classes and ensembles for children and adults on Saturday mornings at Allerton C of E Primary School, Leeds 17. If you want to learn (or re-learn) an instrument, join a group or just find out more about music this is the place for you. Activities we offer range from early years and toddler groups to advanced senior orchestras, and everything in between!

Our more advanced groups (Jazz Orchestra, Senior Orchestra and String Orchestra) often play concerts in the local area under their own steam, with many members who originally started out in our beginner tuition classes or Training Orchestra (five notes and you’re in). At the other extreme, our Mini Music Maker classes cater for children as young as 2. As well as many instrumental tuition classes, we also offer Music Theory, a class for children with special educational needs, and aural training.
